Navajo Knitting

Navajo plying was demonstrated and explained by Maggie Casey at the Guild Professional Development weekend. She showed how to turn a single plied yarn into a triple-ply without using three bobbins.

Lucy Neatby is attributed with creating this knitting technique and says the links don't show in the finished piece.

The technique is demonstrated by Lucy Neatby in this YouTube video:
